It is true that Faith-Based Organizations in Canada are facing an uncertain future. As we enter these uncharted territories, it is becoming more and more evident that we need to draw from our collective wisdom to meet the challenges at hand. We hope that this series of workshops will help gather FBOs, create space to learn together, and start to build organizational capacity around critical areas of work. Praxis Labs has developed a framework to help organizations navigate the complexities of our current context.
